Before my freshmen year, my parents and I prayed long and hard for me to have a good roommate. I was going potluck and had heard HORROR stories about not knowing your roommate and then they end up being a crack addict or something. It happens. Apparently.
But God is good. And blessed me with an amazing roommate.
(This is us freshmen year in Bricktown. Ironically in front of the fountain
where she would get proposed to almost 2 1/2 years later.)
So she's getting married in a little over a year.
And I just wanted to show you what she gave me the other day:
This beautiful candle (ignore the mess of my desk in the background)
And this card:
I'M GOING TO BE A BRIDESMAID!!
I am SO excited. Adrienne, I can't wait to be a part of your day.
It might be too soon for this post. After all, we don't leave for another week and 3 days. But as I'm sitting here trying to do my homework, I just have cruise fever.
Oh. Did I mention I'm going on a cruise?
With 3 AMAZING girls?
To the Bahamas?
For 5 days?
Well, I am.
And I. Can't. Wait.
The following pictures are our ship and our 2 ports.
Now I just have to figure out a way to make $56 last for the rest of the semester and all my cruise paraphernalia. Maybe I'll just opt out on the whole wearing a swimsuit thing. That's acceptable, right?
I have been such a responsible blogger recently. You know what that means, right?
It's almost finals week.
I usually become a FANTASTIC blogger during finals week and right before because I'm just avoiding doing homework/studying.
So the secret's out. Sorry, Mom and Dad. Don't worry, though. I'll be just enough studious to scrape some decent grades. Thanks, Dad, for this great ability that will probably kill me in grad school.
Anyway. Tonight I am currently backstage of the opera that I am in. Well all of chorale is in it, so it's really not that big of a deal. But I thought you would probably want to see me in my period clothes. And hair. The costumer said I had the best hair of the opera. And I did it all by myself. I'm pretty proud.
So it seems I have been slightly remiss on my blog duties. To make up for it, here is my past semester in 17 pictures.
We'll start with Spring Sing!!
Some lovely Pi girls at my house helping us make those GORGEOUS wedding dresses!
Taking a break at B-Dub's after Final Approval. Me, Aaron, Lane.
My amazing co-director, Kailee, and myself running our show in the gym.
Two of my friends from home came to visit! Dith, Anna, Me.
All my Pi girls!!! So proud of them!
In the midst of Spring Sing, my parents hosted a review-type show at my school. Dad, Sister, Mom, Me.
Then there was Pi Banquet:
Awkward prom picture before banquet. I'll just name the girls. Me, Bekah, Kailee, Stephanie.
My wonderful friend and co-director, Kailee.
My date and good friend, Aaron.
Then there was a "thrift-store prom" for Pi and Kappa. (Two clubs on campus.)
My friend Shawn and I.
All semester long, several of my friends and I have been coaching LTC at our church. So Easter weekend we went to Dallas. But first we made a stop by Babe's Chicken:
Holly, Rebekah, Lane, Aaron, Me
Me and Aaron with our drama team.
Lane, Me, Aaron
Yesterday was Kappa (a boy club here on campus) Banquet! We spent all day at the zoo and then had a semi-formal banquet that night. It was SOOO fun!
All the ladies. Bailey, Stephanie, Bekah, Kailee, Me.
Bekah and I all dressed up at night.
Pi girls doing the Pi face and sign at Kappa banquet.
Aaron and I at BJ's after banquet.
All in all, it's been a great semester. It's probably been one of the hardest in my college career, academically, relationally, emotionally, you name it, but it's also been one of the best. I have an amazing group of friends and I'm just loving life!
Now I have to go out and celebrate my birthday. That's right. I am 21 today!
